leBipBip+ GPS : Solar Audio Variometer
leBipBip GPS + is a new solar-powered vario for paragliding and hang gliding with great new features!
Compared to the original leBipBip, the new mini vario is more sensitive, now includes a lift & sink LED indicator so can be used with audio off, the buzzer is also ruggedized
leBipBip+ GPS is easy to use & fully configurable
Made in France in the Alps
Thanks to its GPS Logger System and ultra-fast fix, leGPSBip+ records all your flights using an internal 8GB of memory, this means means it will store more than 20 000 flights!
Back home, connect your leGPSBip+ to your computer and visualize your flight easily! For each flight, leGPSBip+ records your path in two formats (KML and IGC).
Simply open the KML file with Google Earth and experience your flight again! The recorded file includes all your stats such as max speed, max altitude, max G-Force, total distance and duration.
The IGC file recorded is FAI-CIVL approved. Use it to log your flights on your national League (FFVL, DHV, SHV, USHPA, BHPA, …), or to view it in your favourite tracklog software such as XContest, VisuGPS, IGC Webview, Ayvri
The box includes:

leGPSBip+ New Edition
solar powered audio GPS variometer for paragliding and hang gliding with new design and improved features!
leGPSBip+ is solar powered and has an integrated battery.
With the solar panel integrated into the top of the instrument, leGPSBip+ has been designed so that it is always charging when in light, even while switched OFF. With the integrated internal li-ion battery, the instrument has enough capacity for 20 hours of flight even without sun
Forget about flying through a screen, free your visual field and listen to the voice of your new solar assistant ! leGPSBip+ can speak on a regular basis of distance, altitude or time, or on demand when you double-tap on it !
leGPSBip+ speaks to you in the language of your choice (13 different languages), and provides you with all the necessary information a paragliding pilot needs (altitude, speed, climb rate, time, flight duration, …).
All of that without interfering with the vario, and of course, because every pilot is unique, everything can be configured or disabled.
Free flying means free, free from the crowds, and of course free from noise: by selecting the silent mode, the audio beep is disabled and only the side LED blinks, accordingly to the lift rate. Green for lift and red for sink.
For paramotor pilots, it’s an easy way to check the ascent rate despites the engine noise.
leBipBip+ has a third type of tone : the weak lift buzzer.
This indication tone is made of short modulations indicating weak lift (between -30cm/s and your positive lift threshold, (default is +20cm/s), not strong enough to thermal but helping you to find thermal standing nearby.
On the image, grey pilot doesn’t have his weak lift buzzer activated, while green pilot has it activated. The buzzer sounds when he flies through weak lift, allowing to search for the thermal core.

ADJUSTABLE SENSITIVITY & REACTIVITY
The vario lift tone threshold and reactivity time are configurable, leaving you the choice when you want to hear the lifting beeps.
This lift sensivity is adjustable from 10cm/s to 50cm/s, with reactivity slow or fast (default setting is fast)
SINK ALARM SETTINGS
The sink alarm (default setting: disabled), is selectable by -0.50m step, and gives a distinctable feedback to the pilot when entering strong sink.
Settings go from -1 m/s to -3.5 m/s, and alarm off.
Compact and robust, it makes the perfect companion for tandem, competition backup, hike&fly !
5.7 x 3.6 x 1.7cm (2.2″ x 1.5″ x 0.6″)
MADE IN FRANCE
leBipBip+, as it’s predecessor and leGPSBip, is designed, manufactured, and assembled in France, in Grenoble at the heart of the Alps.
Stodeus Paragliding is a small company of two persons passionate about paragliding and works with a disabled workers factory in France.
BUILT TO LAST AND EASY TO FIX
Like every product available here, a two years warranty applies.
And as we believe in sustainable products, the device has been designed with fixability in mind: we offer a complete range of parts. All the parts are easily replaceable with little technical competences.
LEGPSBIP+ IS SMALL BUT SO POWERFUL
leGPSBip+ is ready to fly ! Simply switch it on, and go flying ! With the default parameters, it will track your flight, let you know your altitude and speed on demand, and of course will beep in thermals.
With the Configurator web-app, you can add so much more power to your leGPSBip+ with many other special features.
Enable flight alarms in order to stick to the nearby airspace of your next flight.
Activate the automatic mode of the announce, choose what information you want to hear (altitude, speed, time, climb rate, etc…).
Choose if you want leGPSBip+ to record your flight in KML or IGC format, or both !
And many more features !
All of that can be configured through 1 to 3 different profiles. Let’s say you do three different activities : Hike&Fly, XC flying, tandem. You can set three profiles to match each activity. leGPSBip+ can also record ground-only activities such as hiking or skiing.
